Should we shred all the old newspapers and take magnets to any cassette recordings off of the radio that have commericals in between them as well? How about those old VCR recordings of TV with commercials no longer on the air? That is my take of the opting out function with the text robots. Why would you not want your page archived for historical purposes?... makes no sense. Just another way for big corporate interests to control and censor human expression and mandate history. I rarely use the wayback machine but I occasionally like to look at old webpages of days gone buy for helping to site references and stuff, it would be a shame if something was gone because of the scenario you mention.
